Default 2008 xD motor into 2005 xB

I can buy a 2005 xB with a manual transmission for $1,000
I can buy a 2008 xD with a manual transmission for $300

The xB needs a motor, but is in fair/good condition. It has over 400,000 miles on it.

The xD is completely wrecked and is NOT repairable, but the motor & transmission only have 96,562 miles on them.

Is it possible to swap the 1.8L xD motor into the 1.5L xB.

xD motor code it 2zrfe

Anything is possible with enough time, money, and dedication.

Have I seen it done before? No.

Only 2 engine swaps I've seen done are a prius engine and power pack and a chevy 350.

Although anything is possible with time, money and hard work, I think you're wasting your time with that swap. Literally nothing is common there.

I don't know where you're located, but maybe this might work for you:
